Re: Vallejo WWII Naval and Air force colors - updated March 2016

I have updated my Vallejo WWII naval and air force paint equivalency tables once again. I have finally added the Italian Air Force colors. "Officially" this finally completes this project that I started about 9 years ago. Unofficially, I am always making little tweaks when I get new information. Plu...

Re: Updated Vallejo WWII Naval and Air force colors

It has taken me over a year, but I finally finished the colors for the IJNAF and IJAAF. I also added early war colors from the 1940 USAAF specifications. Now I just have the late war USAAF and the Regia Aeronautica remaining to be done. I also tweaked a few of the Kreigsmarine Norway colors and my g...

Updated Vallejo WWII Naval & Air Force colors May 26, 2014

I recently acquired a book on camouflage of the French Air Force/Armée de l'Air in WWII, and I had some time over the holiday weekend so I have updated my color equivalency tables again a little quicker than I anticipated. This update adds the colors of the Armée de l'Air in WWII. I hope you find th...

Re: Updated my Vallejo Naval color tables again - April 2013

My apologies. I updated the file at the end of the year and forgot to update the link here.

I added all the colors for the Luftwaffe to this version. I used 'paint chips' I made with the Testor's colors to make the matches along with my print references.

You will need to update the link in your reference thread.

Vallejo Naval color tables updated - November, 2012

I have updated my Vallejo Naval color tables again. Changes for this version. - Improved the color matches for US 5-N 'Navy blue' and 20B '1942 Revised Deck Blue.' This is a tweak as these are extremely similar colors. But I think I have them 'nailed' now. - Corrected the Italian Dark Grey to match ...

Re: New Ships Unveiled for Victory at Sea

My bad, I didn't mean thickness. I meant the amount of space (ocean) on either side of the ship.

Re: New Ships Unveiled for Victory at Sea

The CAD drawings look great. My only concern is I think the bases are too large. They could be narrowed a bit IMO.

Re: Paint Equivalents

I am copying my review of the Regia Marina Lifecolor paints on the Forumini. I received my set of Lifecolor 'Italian Navy WWII' colors today and made some paint matching 'chips.' I must say I am disappointed in the set. It comes with six colors, but only three of the colors are in the Snyder & Short...

Re: Paint Equivalents

Wow! I have never heard of these paints. Are they relatively new?

I found this review that seemed rather positive although more oriented toward airbrushing.

I will definitely order a kit and see how they work.

Thanks!

Re: Paint Equivalents

Are these colour matchings designed to be really really close to the proper colours or are they designed to give you the slightly exaggerated 'model scale' correctness of colour (if people follow that comment) They are designed to match the Snyder and Short paint chips of the original color. So you...

Re: Paint Equivalents - updated

I have updated my Vallejo Naval color matching tables. I made improved matches for a couple of the IJN carrier camouflage 'green' colors, a Kriegsmarine color and added The Netherlands. Note my colors for The Netherlands are a guess. The gray tone is similar to the WotC gray used for The Netherlands...
